Local Pumpkin Patches
Kristina and the crew at Kidding Around Greenville have done the work for you with their awesome list of pumpkin patches!
Some of the pumpkin patches on this list are farms offering the full range of fall farm activities from pumpkins to hay rides and farm animals. Some are great local spots that bring in truck loads of pumpkins and display them so your child can select the perfect one, and you can get a great photo.

1.Watch for fire ant hills and other biting insects, especially if its wet. Something about those fields seems to attract those pesky critters.
2.Remind children to pick up pumpkins from the bottom and not the stem. Its easier to carve with a good stem still attached, and cracked or smashed fallen pumpkins really aren’t very much fun.
3.Bring plenty of water, especially if you’re going to farm and plan to stay awhile. Fall in Greenville is often still pretty hot, and hunting for that perfect pumpkin might take awhile.
4.Consider bringing a picnic. Lots of the farms listed have picnic facilities and that gives you a chance to relax and enjoy the day a bit longer.
